God bless him.
I know A.C. Green and Charlie Ward were.
The Chinese Tebow.
Yes, God bless both of them.
He has a fine testimony.
Much of “Christian Music” is just plain awful. I’m talking about “Jesus is my boyfiend” type songs.
If that’s what the article is talking about theuy will get a pass from me on this one.
Like every genre, Christian music has its share of junk....my presumption is that the Daily Swarm isn’t that discerning.
RE: I know A.C. Green and Charlie Ward were.
Don’t forget two time NBA champ David Robinson of the San Antonio Spurs.
So was former NBA scoring champ, “Pistol” Pete Maravich before he tragically died of a heart attack.
The only one I can think of is David Robinson, but he was from Navy.

“Much of Christian Music is just plain awful.”
Written for women by men who act like women.
One of the artists mentioned had a top 25 album on iTunes last week... it’s like the March For Life, if you’re not in lockstep you don’t exist.
And when I say top 25... I’m talking top 25 album for all of iTunes... not a Christian/Gospel subchart.
The shiny object to keep everyone’s attention off of Obama’s destructive agenda on religion and the economy.
I disdain rap in any form, even with “Christian lyrics”. I listened to the Hillsong video that was posted in the article. I really liked that song - hadn’t heard it before. However, I suspect they are knocking it because it’s too tame.
It would be interesting if Jeremy had mentioned some more rock-like Christian artists like:
Jeremy Camp (The Way, Take My Life, Lay Down My Pride) or
Switchfoot (Dare You To Move, Dark Horses, Mess Of Me) or
Third Day (Make Your Move, Lift Up Your Face)
Try listening to any of these and read the lyrics. Outstanding music & rock solid Christian songs.
For example Jeremy Camp’s “The Way” is so uplifting — it sends me soaring every time I listen to it.
I prefer this ‘Christian’ song.
Current Warriors coach Mark Jackson is a minister.
Other favorites of mine include Casting Crowns, Kutless, Mercy Me, and Newsboys.
I'm starting to get into Shawn McDonald now too.
The song "Rise" is growing on me...
Bobby Bare did it best:
He’s even got a Bill Clinton reference in this live version. ;^)
Watching Jackie sends chills through me. I had no clue about her until a couple of months ago when some FReeper posted a link. I spent hours listening to her on Youtube.
If Jeremy Lin had mentioned her I don’t think Fuse would have reacted much differently than to his Hillsong reference...
I’ve followed Jackie’s career almost from day one and wasn’t totally surprised that she would be a great singer.
I just never thought she would do it in such a short space of time. (3 years from when I first discovered her on her mom’s YouTube).
She is phenomenal..
Thanks for that link. That young lady truly is phenomenal.
What a voice.
>>>And I understand he is a Harvard graduate too.
In Economics no less. Saw it said on Twitter that Lin is the only person with a Harvard Econ degree doing something meaningful right now :)
More favorites (a little more intense but still legitimately Christian):
Fireflight (For Those Who Wait, Stay Close, Desperate)
Disciple (Dear X - You Don’t Own Me, Things Left Unsaid)
Red (Faceless, Start Again, Breathe Into Me)
Yep. She’s truly ‘one of a kind’.
I agree, but I know I'm in the minority. I prefer traditional hymns sung by choirs and accompanied by organs. However, it seems that electric guitars and drums have chased choirs and organs out of most churches, and I can't think of a decent hymn that has been written since Bertha Mae Lillenas wrote "Jesus Is Always There" in 1934.
“Jeuss Is My Boyfriend” sounds more like the South Park parody of Christian music, than actual Christian Music.
Bill Mallonee (Vigilantes of Love)
Jars of Clay
You are what you listen to. Garbage in, garbage out.
So true. I used to listen to strictly secular music for most of my life, but for the most part, the "messages" were at best bland, at worst crude, callow, and even vulgar.
It was my long-suffering wife that finally got me into Christian music (which I've now listened to for about four years). I just love it. The message is always positive, edifying, uplifting, and often very moving.
I know some of the artists who are Christians on your list. Thad Cockrell has an amazing voice. Jars of Clay is a good rock band too.
And as for Kieran Kane, I just love his style of bluegrass. He's one of my favorites. Pure toe-tapping pleasure!
I am a Professional-Sports-Phobe. I specifically have no interest whatsoever in professional basketball. I have never watched a professional basketbal game in my life. Until Last night, because The Sacramento Kings my local team was playing in New York, and I wanted to see what all the brouhaha is about. Lin seems to be untouched by the thug-celebrity disease so fart, he is clearly a great player and I hope he's immune to the envirenment.
Good luck to him.
So are these lyrics actual "Christian" lyrics or from South Park?
You are my desire
No one else will do
Cause nothing else could take your place
To feel the warmth of your embrace.
Here’s a live link to great radio station out of Maine. Positive 89.3
I'm not good, but I've gotten good enough so that people cam recognize the tunes I'm playing out of old copies of The Broadman Hymnnal and The Baptist Hymnal.
These songs had real meaning in my life, and still do.
Very humble and soul-searching.
But I can get a couple of Christian stations coming from Vegas: K-Love (which is a Christiannetcast, I think), and S.O.S.
My truck radio is set to those stations and a few others.
My 14 year old daughter likes “Red” a bunch, but has a lot of variety of Christian music on her I-pod. The other daughter is into the softer stuff.
My 16 year-old son has mainly (only?) Christian music on his I-pod, but mainly “screamo”, and rap. I gotta laugh at the stuff he listens too, but don’t have to yell at him too much to turn it down.
And it's not only her pure voice. She has a very mature stage presence.
What an amazing kid.
That was what was so funny about the South Park episode, after all. It’s not like he had to completely re-write the words.
I don’t recognise the lyrics you cite. Whether they are part of a “jesus is my boyfriend” type of song or not, I could not say.
This is more of what I’m listening to these days, although I pretty much cross the spectrum on music, both Christian and non-Christian:
“A voice screaming from within
Begging just to feel again
Cant find who I am without you near me
Id give anything to live, cause without you I dont exist
Youre the only one who saves me from myself
I abandoned this love and laid it to rest and now I’m one of the forgotten”
Those are actual Praise and Worship lyrics.
It’s sad when the culture can see what is wrong with we Christians better than we can....
Newsboys, “He Reigns” really got to me when I first heard it.
The Newsboys are amazing. Probably my favorite band.
I was sad to see Peter Furler move on and go solo. His solo album is OK, but it's nowhere near his work with the Newsboys.
From what I understand, Michael Tait (of D C Talk fame) is now their new lead singer.
Still not the same...
But he has Kevin Max singing with him on two of the new songs..
I will be there!
It's a celebration in memory of Warren Hellman, who founded the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in SF.
If I could join you, I would, but it's too far away.
They just need Toby Mac now. :^)
My favorite Christian band is Saviour Machine. They hail from California but have a much larger following in Europe. Their style is progressive goth metal and their lyrics are inspired largely by the Book of Revelation. Here are a few video links:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JQwr8TrAmg&feature=fvst (Jesus Christ)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLZVHg5GhZ8 (The Beast)
The ending in this video is excellent.
